A Capac councilman charged with criminal sexual conduct has been bound over to St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Gregory VanNeste was bound over on all original counts, as well as two added counts of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree, Senior Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jennifer Deegan said.

VanNeste originally was charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, felonious assault and felony firearm.

District Judge Cynthia Platzer presided over the preliminary examination, which began shortly after 11 a.m. today. Soon after the hearing began, Platzer granted the prosecution's request to close the courtroom during the preliminary examination.

Platzer allowed one person to remain in the courtroom to support the victim, as well as one police officer. Deegan said the victim’s grandfather remained in the courtroom during testimony.

Only the victim, a 15-year-old girl, testified during the hearing, Deegan said. She said she motioned to close the courtroom to make it as “safe” a place as possible for the girl during her testimony.

Platzer said she thought it was appropriate to close the courtroom.

“It is difficult enough for an adult to testify,” Platzer said.“… But then toss in having to give testimony of some very difficult areas of one’s life, and then also toss in a young person whose emotions are not quite set, shall we say.”

Oooh, I've seen what Judge Kelly does to pedophiles. Glad he is there, if he is guilty he will get the book thrown at him and a peace of Judge Kelly's mind to boot....

You would think with that many police agency's being represented at the time of his arrest, one of them would have properly reported it and sent the victim to the hospital for proper testing.

If not, there is something seriously wrong with this situation.

All we can do is wait and see.
